's a competent man. this administration in effect is now saying, "oh, don't blame the united nations ambassador. don't blame the white house spokesman. don't blame the president, because our intelligence system failed so decisively." i don't know which worries me more, the idea that the intelligence system took weeks to figure out the obvious-- although we are told in fact they had information the day before the attack because the video that went out from al qaeda asking that the ambassador-- somebody be killed on 9/11 was a day earlier. so i don't know whether i feel more comfortable knowing the administration was incompetent and lie the to us or i feel more comfortable knowing the intelligence community was totally out of touch. my hunch is the intelligence community was not out of touch. the ambassador's own diary, apparently indicates he was worried about being targeted for death. you have to ask yourself-- this-- the congress should be holding hearings right now. how could an ambassador be in benghazi, the hot bed of anti-american sentiment in libya, "how could he be there on 9/11 with no

. >> this took place when the united nations general assembly was in town. here you are asking police what you're being arrested for. what were you charged with? >> eventually -- i wasn't told on the spot. i was neither read my rights nor was i told what i was being arrested for. but later at one of the precincts where i was held, and before i was taken to central booking, i was told i was charged with criminal mischief, making graffiti and possessing a graffiti instrument. i was after 22 hours arraigned before a judge and i'm supposed to return in november to see whether i will be put on trial on these charges or not. >> do you think that spray painting this particular ad was a form of peaceful disobedience? was that what you were trying to sort of -- the message you were trying to send? >> my two messages were this, that i believe the poster is freedom of expression and i believe what i did was a freedom of expression in answer to that. i chose a very nonviolent peaceful method. i mean, i chose the color pink. you don't get more peaceful and nonviolent than pink. i chose not rip the poster.
, joins us, former spokesman for the last four you know ambassadors to the united nations. good to see you. before the attack ever occurred americans were known to be in dank arer there. there had been aing string attal islamic militants. is it your sense that the obama administration was owe live just to the known danger or they simply ignored it? >> you know, i don't know. i think we'll find out but it is clear that they missed the growing threats and they purposefully downplayed these threats. i think that's the trouble. gregg: sources have now confirmed to fox news that intel officials knew within 24 hours that this was a preplanned attack and yet the obama administration, the white house, the president, all of the individuals involved, spent the course of the next week or so denying that. what's going on here? is this incompetence? is it confusion, or, is it a deliberate, intentional cover-up? >> i think it is deliberate to downplay the threats because clearly the narrative that the obama campaign has been trying to push that usama bin laden is dead and al qaeda is crushed and we know
in libya as there are more calls for the united nations ambassador susan rice to resign. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge live in washington with more on that. >> reporter: thank you, gregg and good morning. a congressional source confirming to fox news that uav assets were quote, repositioned to establish better situational awareness on the ground and monitor at least two suspects training sites in eastern libya known to be used by foreign fighters. we're learning more details about the attack itself. the compound was reportedly assaulted on three sides with use of heavy weapons as fox was first to report, there were two waves to the attack strongly suspected inside information specifically use of mortars which hit consulate building and annex a mile away. here is republican senator bob corker this morning. they are demanding specific communications between ambassador stevens and the state department. >> at a time most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country instead we've had this bizarre response which only lea
british prime minister and the united nations special envoy for global education, gordon brown, joins the table this morning. good to have you on board. you may not talk soccer. >> prime minister brown was a little disturbed that we were over here celebrating the suez crisis, the boiling of brits in oil. we are so sorry. >> we've moved on a long time ago. i don't know if you can move on. >> no, it's very hard. let's talk first of all about the crisis in the eurozone. where do we stand today? it's not on the front payable of the page of the papers so much. >> i would say we've stopped being like greece, and we're probably more like japan, and we've got this long-term crisis now. when the european central bank came in to be the lender of last resort, you've got some stalemate for the time being, you can prevent things from going very seriously wrong. the problem with europe is it's going to slow very slowly, if at all. it's got a huge banking problem that's still got to be sorted out. the leverage is far worse than the american banks. we've got a competitiveness issue, and we're losing
chapter made history when 428 soccer players came together, but the united nations has since defeated that record with more than 2000 dribblers in the gaza strip. they will be at the stick at 1:00. >>> the petaluma little league team will enjoy a whole new adventure this afternoon. since advancing to the little league world series, the players took part in a town parade and honored by both the giants and a's. now the team will swim with dolphins at six flags discovery kingdom in vallejo. there will also be a ceremony to honor the team. should be a nice day up in vallejo. >>> it's 7:25. and i just posted on my facebook page, hey it's going to be warmer, warmer, warmer. and viewer pam nolan, rosemary, said no. thought it was fall. can't take the heat. i thought summer was over. >> yes, it is going to be a scorcher for some as we get into the weekend. this morning, low clouds, even fog out there, visibility less than a mile in areas near santa rosa. but we've got some big heat upcoming our way. temperatures will eventually get into the low 100s for the hottest spot. so for today, the mor
at the united nations on wednesday became the highest ranked official to publicly say there was a link between the attack and al qaeda. >> for some time al qaeda and other groups have launched attacks and kidnappings into neighboring countries and they are working with other violent extremists to undermine the democratic transitions under way in north africa as we tragically saw in benghazi. >> republicans are trying to seize on this slow walk by the administration. it seems to be a legitimate gripe. they are trying to make it stick. a group of powerful house republicans from the armed services, foreign affairs, intelligence, judiciary and appropriations committee have sent a letter saying clearly the threat from al qaeda and affiliate groups has increased an we're not learning. a good time line of the obama's administration evolving statements on libya from saying it wasn't planned to now acknowledging it was an act of terrorism. the most charitable explanation of these resolving statements is information the administration received has changed or wasn't complete or the most uncharitable is t
prime minister benjamin netanyahu to address the united nations general assembly where he's expected to outline how far he will go to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon the speech comes two days after president obama warned iran to time to dispute is not unlimited. let's focus first on the optics as far as how the white house has handled this. the white house is saying what happened in libya was a terrorist attack, secretary of state clinton has walked back specifics as to whether the attack was driven by or carried out by an al qaeda affiliate in northern libya. i guess the question, as a senior political reporter at politico is, is this -- is this -- how do you assess the white house's handling of this in materi terms of the message and the back and forth of susan rice and the president. >> so it's hard right now to kind of move that around a little bit. i think that they could have had huge issues right after the attack, vis-a-vis security, vis-a-vis egypt if mitt romney hadn't gotten in the way. >> right. >> i think that was a big deal he got in the way because that dis
is the better candidate to try to reverse the trend that the united nations government has been on in the past four years. so we'll have to see if he sharpens that attack even more today. but clearly they know they've got some challenges ahead, in new hampshire, of course the battleground state just four electoral votes there. in this tight race four votes could mean the difference between who is president and who is not. they want to fight hard. mitt romney's adopted home state there, if you will. >> right, so he'll be doing that for sure in new hampshire and then in ohio today. okay, thank you very much, ron mott appreciate that. >>> let's get more on the president's surge in the polls. he is increasing his lead in a number of key swing states. he's leading in all nine nbc/"wall street journal"/marist polls taken over the last three weeks. let's talk about what's happening from the gop perspective. because some there are complaining about the polling. they say the pollsters are oversampling democrats. any legitimacy to any of these complaints? >> well, you know, alex one of the things that w
crisis? with so many questions about management of the middle east, when you have a key united nations gathering, not to meet with world leaders, including netanyahu at a time of so much concern over iran? >> this president has been obviously in constant contact throughout the four years with world leaders. he's obviously been in deep consultation with prime minister netanyahu. obviously our administration has been in deep consultation with the defense and intelligence agencies in israel. so this president has been very, very focused on strengthens our alliances. he's built an unprecedented global effort in terms of sanctions against iran. so this president has led, and i think the question -- you know, we do have an election coming up. this president committed a few things to the american people in 2008. he would restore and rebuild alliances. he would end the war in iraq. he would find and make sure that bin laden was brought to justice. and he has done all those things. by the way, let's talk about governor romney's response during this. you know, in the hours as these attacks becam

is doing to houses. at the united nations today, israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, wander that iran's work to build a nuclear bomb will be irreversible by next summer. that is significant because he's never put a time frame like that on it before. >> and i believe that faced with a clear red line, iran will back down. and this will give more time for sanctions and diplomacy to convince iran to dismantle its nuclear weapons program altogether. >> pelley: now, iran's president, mahmoud ahmadinejad, denies that iran is building a bomb. so we asked david martin to tell us more. >> reporter: it looked like a cartoon, but it was deadly serious. israel's prime minister netanyahu drew the red line that would trigger an attack on iran's nuclear program as clearly as it has ever been drawn. >> a red line should be drawn right here, before-- before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: that second stage is taking place at this underground facility near the holy city of cum, where iran is enriching your anium to a 20% level of pur
to the united nations, susan ryce. he was either not included in some of these briefings, which would be troublesome, or just thrown under the bus when she went out on the sunday shows, explaining that this was not a planned attack, and we now know it was a terrorist attack in libya. >> do you think anything's going to happen with that, with susan rice? do you think she could potentially lose her job or no? >> i don't think she'll lose her job, but i don't think we'll be seeing her much in the upcoming months. >> molly, best and worst? >> i'll give best week to todd akin, the republican senate candidate out in missouri. the deadline passed this week for him to withdraw from the race. he was under heavy, heavy pressure from so many republicans to get out. they say they couldn't possibly win. he stuck it out, he knew they'd come around and they'd give him their money and their support when they didn't have a choice, and sure enough, that's exactly what's happening. you have a lot of republicans magically changing their mind now that they can't get him out of there. and for worst week, i
of this administration in total disarray. you had the united nations ambassador and the presidential press secretary sunday after the event saying things we now know were totally false. there is a report that came out last night i think on abc and fox both that they actually knew 24 hours in advance there was real danger there. >> and the ambassador's diary likewise. >> you have a president who even after his press secretary conceded it was a terrorist attack is still going back to his fantasy version that this is caused by some terribly stupid movie. over two weeks of this. an american ambassador and three other americans dead and collapse of our position in benghazi totally. a large number of cia agents who left town the next day. more than known we had there by the way and the news media says mitt romney's timing was terrible. give me a break. >> he was unable to make the argument. he doesn't present an alternative. >> this is one of my great frustrations with conservatives. i'm not talking about you. you're right. the media hasn't been following this story as much as it could have but if you wer
